From master suites to guest retreats, there’s one piece of furniture that truly makes a bedroom—the headboard. As the natural focal point of the bedroom, it sets the tone for the entire space. And yet this key component continues to be overlooked in so many bedrooms. So here’s our homage to the humble (and occasionally not-so-humble) headboard.
When doing a bedroom makeover, most professional designers start their blueprint with the bed, specifically the headboard
. It's the heart of any boudoir, and from a style standpoint, there's no easier way to make a dramatic statement than with a stunning headboard
Designers also understand that bed placement can be a real difference maker. Don't let your bed get lost in the corner—stage it as your centerpiece to let your headboard's beauty shine. If your room's layout isn't working, have the confidence to mix it up. You can even place your bed in front of your windows to give your space an entirely new perspective. In this setup, try adding farmhouse shutters or floor-to-ceiling drapes for added effect.
Along with their good looks, headboards can also be functional.
An upholstered bed is so on-trend, and its padded surface offers a comfortable place to lean while reading or watching TV. Other bed styles maximize function with features like reading lights, closed storage for personal effects and built-in outlets for charging your phone or plugging in an alarm clock.
Like all bedroom furniture, headboards come in a wide variety of styles, finishes and textures. Whether you're buying the whole bed or just attaching a headboard to your frame, you'll find over 150 to choose from at Raymour & Flanigan in store and online! With that kind of selection, there's truly something for everyone.
